I used to have an inner sadness and loneliness. I needed something but I didn't know what. No matter what I tried to fill that void in my life with ...nothing worked. That's because the sin in my life separated me from God.
Then I came to know Jesus as my Savior. He is what was missing from my life. That void is where He belongs. Now I have a song in my heart and a peace that transcends circumstances. He has made me whole and He can do the same for you.
That's the sentiment on the inside of this window card. The cute koala and sentiment are digis from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I just love their stamps. In fact, I've had to restrain myself lately... lol. I promised I would only get stamps that I would make into a card that week. We'll see how that works out.
Anyway, I colored it with pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. I'm still working on the shading. I actually looked at pictures of real koalas for some hints, but actual colors don't necessarily make for good card coloring, so I lightened everything up a bit; especially on the face.
This month's alphabet swap called for the letter "W". Well, I decided to put Woodstock in a window card. The actual image of Woodstock is a sticker that came in a pack of 48 Peanuts stickers at the Dollar Spot at Target.
I used my circle and scalloped circle dies from Nestabilities to make the hole and the green scalloped trim around it. The paper was a real find. I saw it at my LSS and got it for my Valentines card. I was so pleased with how it looked on that card, I had to use it again for this card.
This card made it all the way to Australia in under a week, and Anna loves it! I love it when a plan comes together ... lol.
I've had this stamp for awhile, but I wanted to wait until I found the right paper. Well, I think you'll agree, I did! This fantastic paper is from BoBunny and I was so excited when I spotted it (while getting Valentine paper). I mean, how often is it you can make a truly masculine card that is loaded with glitter? ...lol.
I may have to go back to my LSS and get another sheet or two since the inventory is always changing. I also want to do a spinner card with this stamp, so you'll definitely be seeing it again.
I found these sparkly letters at Target for 99 cents and I just couldn't resist! I love sparkles and bling and glitter, so these letters just screamed, "buy me!" ... lol. I used them to make this card for the Valentine swap. Pamela already got this card and she loves it, so it's smiles all around.

~ IF YOU WERE TO DIE TODAY ... do you know FOR SURE you'd go to HEAVEN? ~
Here's what the Bible says:
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" ~ we are all sinners
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." ~ we deserve to pay for our sin. But God provided a way out for us.
Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." ~ He paid those wages for us. When we accept His gift of Salvation, God no longer sees our sin ... He sees His Son!
Romans 10:9-10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
~ You CAN know for sure! Jesus loves you and has provided a way for you to be with Him forever! Please know we can't get there on our own ... because of our sin. But God paid our sin debt on Calvary's cross. He conquered sin and death when He arose from the grave. He is in Heaven now ... waiting for us. Salvation is a gift from God. Repent of your sin and accept His perfect gift today.
Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." ~ "whosoever" means you and me!
